I KNOW i shouldn't be painting because I keep saying i get no sleep..oh well, I couldn't let it go and fall behind. I started the sunset painting. Wish I did a better job of the cirrus clouds though. Nolan, is it possible to go back over some areas such as the direct sun area (more white or yellow directly around it), and even some of the sky colors? Once it's dry of course.
The moment you find yourself mostly satisfied with a painting and think you'll "just quickly" do this or that, that's the moment to stop completely. Take the painting off your easel and put it aside for at least 24 hours, then reassess whether it really needs that tweak.

You can once the painting is dry Pat. If it's still wet, just lift out the area you don't like

Too dangerous to do anything wet for me. I'll wait to dry. I am kind of thinking of doing two of these too! Here is a kind of schematic of the first part of the tutorial. Nolan, just let me know if it's ok with you if I do these things.

I will tackle the boat tomorrow  ;D    Sorry I didn't get to ask my question during the webinar (as I haven't figured out yet how to paint without covering myself and everything else in sight with the stuff) but I wasn't sure if I was supposed to reflect the darker clouds at the top of the canvas in the water?
